OBJECTIVE: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication in patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). While AKI occurring post-PCI has been well studied, the incidence and clinical significance of early renal impairment evident on hospital admission prior to PCI and which resolves towards discharge has not been investigated. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 2339 STEMI patients treated with primary PCI...

BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial fibrillation and concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) are at higher risk for myocardial infarction or cardiovascular death, often require antiplatelet therapy and are therefore exposed to an increased risk of bleeding. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the efficacy and safety profile of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation and concomitant CAD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a trial-level meta-analysis of CAD subgroups from four trials of NOAC versus warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation, comparing the primary trial endpoints (efficacy: stroke or systemic embolic event; safety: International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis major bleeding) in patients with versus those without CAD, and used interaction testing to assess for treatment effect modification...

BACKGROUND: The optimal anti-coagulation strategy for patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention is unclear in contemporary clinical practice of radial access and potent P2Y12-inhibitors. The aim of this study was to investigate whether bivalirudin was superior to heparin monotherapy in patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction without routine glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use. METHODS: In a large pre-specified subgroup of the multicentre, prospective, randomised, registry-based, open-label clinical VALIDATE-SWEDEHEART trial we randomised patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, treated with ticagrelor or prasugrel, to bivalirudin or heparin monotherapy with no planned use of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors during percutaneous coronary intervention...

INTRODUCTION: The safety and efficacy of prasugrel and ticagrelor in patients with diabetes mellitus presenting with acute coronary syndrome and treated with percutaneous coronary intervention remain to be assessed. METHODS: All diabetes patients admitted for acute coronary syndrome and enrolled in the REgistry of New Antiplatelets in patients with Myocardial Infarction (RENAMI) were compared before and after propensity score matching. Net adverse cardiovascular events (composite of death, stroke, myocardial infarction and BARC 3-5 bleedings) and major adverse cardiovascular events (composite of death, stroke and myocardial infarction) were the co-primary endpoints...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes is associated with poor cardiovascular outcomes, and insulin-treated patients usually have a worse prognosis than non-insulin-treated subjects. The relationship between insulin treatment and outcomes in high-risk myocardial infarction patients has not been described in a large dataset. METHODS: To investigate the association between insulin-treated diabetes and long-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients with high-risk myocardial infarction, we used adjusted Cox models to compare cardiovascular mortality and hospitalisation among 28,771 patients grouped by diabetes status and insulin treatment from four randomised clinical trials (VALIANT, EPHESUS, OPTIMAAL, CAPRICORN) of acute myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure and/or left ventricular systolic dysfunction...

BACKGROUND: Antiplatelet agents are the cornerstone of medical treatment in acute coronary syndromes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical epidemiology of patients after an acute coronary syndrome treated with different antiplatelet agent regimens in a large real community setting. METHODS: The ARCO database, including more than 12 million inhabitants, was evaluated. Antiplatelet agent prescriptions were analysed as follows: aspirin, clopidogrel, other antiplatelet agents used alone; the free and fixed combination of clopidogrel and aspirin; the free combination of aspirin with other antiplatelet agents...

BACKGROUND: The simplified pulmonary embolism severity index (sPESI) score has been reported to be useful in predicting 30-day mortality for patients with pulmonary embolism, which helps the identification of low-risk patients for early hospital discharge or home treatment. However, therapeutic decision-making should also be based on the risks of adverse events other than mortality. METHODS: The COMMAND VTE Registry is a multicentre registry enrolling consecutive patients with acute symptomatic venous thromboembolism in Japan between January 2010 and August 2014, and the current study population consisted of 1715 patients with pulmonary embolism...

BACKGROUND: Primary ventricular fibrillation is an ominous complication of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and proper biomarkers for risk prediction are lacking. Growth differentiation factor-15 is a marker of inflammation, oxidative stress and hypoxia with well-established prognostic value in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients. We explored the predictive value of growth differentiation factor-15 in a subgroup of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients with primary ventricular fibrillation...

BACKGROUND: Elevated heart rate is associated with poor clinical outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction. However, in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention the importance of elevated heart rate in the very early phase remains unknown. We evaluated the impact of elevated heart rate in the very early pre-hospital phase of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention on cardiovascular magnetic resonance markers of reperfusion success and clinical outcome...

Electrocardiogram sub-studies from the Hirulog Early Reperfusion/Occlusion 1 and 2 trials, which tested bivalirudin as an adjunctive anticoagulant to fibrinolysis in ST-elevation myocardial infarction, have contributed to the literature. The concept of using the presence of infarct lead Q waves to determine reperfusion benefit has subsequently been explored in multiple primary percutaneous coronary intervention studies. The angiographic findings before percutaneous coronary intervention combine with the baseline electrocardiogram to accurately diagnose ST-elevation myocardial infarction and evaluate its potential territory...

OBJECTIVE: As the prevalence of malignancies in the general population increases, the odds of an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patient having a history of cancer likewise increases, and the impact on post-cardiac arrest care and mortality is not well known. We aimed to investigate 30-day and 1-year mortality after successful resuscitation in patients with cancer prior to OHCA compared with OHCA patients without a previous cancer diagnosis. METHODS: A cohort of 993 consecutive OHCA patients with successful resuscitation during 2007-2011 was included...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) induces marked activation of the sympathetic nervous system. Fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) is not only an intracellular protein, but also a secreted adipokine that contributes to obesity-related metabolic complications. Here, we examined the role of serum FABP4 as a pathophysiological marker in patients with AMI. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 106 patients presenting to the emergency unit with a final diagnosis of AMI, including 12 patients resuscitated from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) caused by ventricular fibrillation...
